My wife and I (and her parents) spent last night at Ocean Blue Motel II, which is being rebranded as Ocean View Lodge. The rooms are absolutely spotless, recently remodeled and done nicely if simply, and the ocean view from our 3rd floor balconies was spectacular. Beds were comfortable. All got a good night's sleep in addition to enjoying late-night and early-morning beach walks.
Ocean Blue/View is ideal for anyone looking for a quality room at a budget price on Vilano beach. Beware that the free breakfast is spartan -- prepackaged rolls and bagels with packets of cream cheese, butter, and jams, plus prepackaged juice and (freshly made) coffee -- and that's it. But each room includes a refrigerator and microwave in addition to coffee maker for a handy option, so you can bring preferred provisions. Every room has a balcony, but those below Floor 3 will be mostly looking at the building in front, so go for the top floor for a complete beach view. (Pets are allowed, but only with prior approval, and only on a few Floor 1 rooms.)
